Any Ideas why?

Here are some general tips regarding optimal hardware configuration for PhotoScan processing:
 
CPU: effects on the processing speed on every processing step. Higher frequency and bigger number of cores will result in faster processing. Usually we recommend the following six-core CPUs as optimal desktop solutions for PhotoScan processing, like Intel i7 4960X (3.60 GHz). In case the processing tasks require more than 64 GB RAM we can suggest to use single-socket Xeon-based configuration with E5-1660 v2 (3.50 GHz). For jobs that require 128+ GB RAM double-socket Xeon workstations should be considered, for example, based on E5-2667v2 processor.
You can check the following benchmark page for some comparative information on different CPUs:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPU/1057
 
GPU: is used only for depth maps estimation (sub-step of Build Dense Cloud stage) but improves the speed of this process significantly. The recommended cards are the following: nVidia GeForce GTX 580, GTX 680, GTX 780 or GTX TITAN (GTX 780 Ti and GTX TITAN Black edition would be the fastest, however, we haven't yet tested GTX 980). Several GPUs can be used for additional speed-up. Also some of PhotoScan users successfully utilize ATI Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon R9 290x cards and report that the processing performance could be even better than nVidia cards on some datasets, but due to instable driver support usually we do not recommend ATI cards. Also note that professional class graphic cards like Quadro are not that effective in terms of PhotoScan performance and also may have visualization problems when dealing with high-poly meshes.
And here is another thread regarding the GPU performance benchmarks based on users experience:

Please also note that nVidia drivers 340.52 and later cause OpenCL computations failure, so we recommend to use the previous driver version. The problem will be fixed in the next PhotoScan version (1.1.0).
 
RAM: allows to process bigger number of photos in the single chunk and/or to achieve higher reconstruction quality, since the model generation stage is very resource demanding. Usually we recommend to install 64 GB RAM (maximal possible on the desktops), if the processing tasks requires high reconstruction quality or large amount of images. Approximate memory requirements for each processing stage depending on the number/resolution of images and reconstruction parameters used can be checked in the following document: http://www.agisoft.com/pdf/tips_and_tricks/PhotoScan_Memory_Requirements.pdf

Also to note Currently i am running

AMD FX 9590 Processor
32GB Ram
3 EVGA GTX 780 acx sc GPUs

And im looking to upgrade everything but the GPUs, less theres something better.

I am wondering what is the BEST computer build for Photoscan.  Lets use 1000 images @ 12mp.

Best CPU or CPUs?
Best GPU or GPUs?
Ram?

and so on...


Currently i am working with over 500 tiff images at 12-24mp and i am trying to figure out what the best computer build for this software would cost.

Thank you

Hello,

Has anyone had any luck installing to a different drive?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew what processes use the GPU, my understanding is the GPU is used during the point cloud step. I have 3 Evgas 780 and I am not seeing any GPU load at all and i have all 3 check under the settings.

I'm working with 3 evga 780 sc axt and my computer freezes up when I run then in SLI mode. I was wondering is it better to run it without SLI? What would give me the best performance?

Earlier today I was running a project and my computer ended up crashing when i turned it back on and got back into Photoscan, My GPUs arent showing up anymore.... I cant figure out what went wrong.

I am running on AMD 9590 Processor 8 cores@4.7, 32G of ram and 3 evgas 780 SC AXT on SLI mode.

Need help fixing this issue i have already tried uninstalling and re-installing the software.
